Description
Lord Byron’s life as poet, philanderer, homosexual and freedom fighter is legendary. This new selection of his letters and journals, taken from the unbowdlerised edition prepared by Leslie Marchand in the 1970s, provides the cream of his informal prose and represents the thought processes and publishing dilemmas behind the major works. No other English writer lived so remarkable an existence, from rented rooms in Aberdeen to a Nottinghamshire peerage, and notorious Italian exile to a glorious death in the Greek War of Independence. The volume is copiously annotated and unusually clearly printed on the highest-quality pure, thick paper, with superb binding.
